Dormant Seeding or Slit Seeding Today?
Being the 23rd of October, I know I'm a little late to the game for slit seeding and starting new seed this year, and therefore was prepared to dormant seed within the next week. However, I've been reading we are to have a drier and warmer winter this year, and I fear that the seed will germinate over winter and not give me a good ratio this coming spring. Temps right now are highs of 45-65F and dip down to the lowest of 33F in the evenings. Relative humidity is around 80-95%. Ten day forecast still shows average of 50 for highs.
Am I too late in the game to slit seed and baby for germination this year? Am I going to have limited success for dormant seeding this year? Do I just sigh and wait for next year late summer/early fall (we lost a lot of our turf this season due to the extremely dry conditions).
